Chuck In Winter

This bird is by no means domesticated. It's very difficult to get a photo of him. Here's one from yesterday morning.  I was snapping from my living room through the glass of the door, and he knows it. He took off seconds later, his beak stuffed with almonds.

Hey Chuck! "Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name....!"

Bix said...

That's a song, isn't it. Mick Jagger?

I think he knows how handsome he is.

Dr. Mel said...

Yup, you got it! He does know how handsome he is--after all, he's a prince!

We heard them sing at the Voodoo Lounge Tour in Memphis in 1994. Fantastic! I don't know how Jagger keeps his energy up, but it was non-stop for 3 hrs.!

Bix said...

Prince Charles!

Energy ... perhaps supplements? Expensive ones?

Dr. Mel said...

Oh, sorry, I was referring to the frog looking at its reflection when I said "he's a prince"!

Dr. Mel said...

You fixed my mistake (re Chuck) by referring to Prince Chuck of Wales--good one, Bix!
Re Jagger, I could be cynical and say "drugs," but I think he wouldn't still be so healthy if that were the case.
